The Rule of Law and The Indian Removal Act of 1830

Date: Monday, November 12, 2018
Time: 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Location: University of Arkansas - Little Rock, Jack Stephens Center

The United States Marshals Museum (USMM) invites you to join us on November 12th to listen to NPR Morning Edition co-host and author Steve Inskeep for our lecture, “The Rule of Law” at UA-Little Rock’s Jack Stephens Center. This free and open to the public event begins at 6 p.m. Mr. Inskeep will be discussing the impact, then and now, on the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Inskeep is the co-host of Morning Edition, a nationally-broadcast daily news program on NPR public radio. Inskeep is the author of Jacksonland, his 2015 historic account on President Andrew Jackson's long-running conflict with John Ross, a Cherokee chief who resisted the removal of Indians from the eastern United States in the 1830's. In 1839, Ross’ wife Elizabeth “Quatie” Ross fell ill on the Trail of Tears and died in Little Rock. Her original grave marker was thought lost until discovered in Little Rock’s historic Mount Holly Cemetery. The original stone is preserved now inside the Historic Arkansas Museum, and a replica is in Mount Holly, along with a memorial, where visitors often leave tokens in the American Indian tradition. Former United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit Judge Morris “Buzz” Arnold will introduce the program and moderate the question-and-answer session. Event sponsors include UA-Little Rock, Sequoyah National Research Center, KUAR-Radio and NPR. Admission is free, but an RSVP is required by November 9 to https://theruleoflaw.eventbrite.com. About the United States Marshals Museum The future United States Marshals Museum will be a national Museum located on the riverfront in Fort Smith, Ark. Opening in the fall of 2019, the United States Marshals Museum will tell the story of our nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency from its establishment by President George Washington through current day. The Museum will honor the sacrifice of Marshals killed in the line of duty, as well as those who continue to place their lives in harm’s way, as they enforce the Constitution.
